Radon Testing

Radon comes from the natural (radioactive) breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. Radon is present in the air you breathe. It is colorless and odorless and can only be detected by proper scientific testing. Radon can be present in homes, offices, and schools - and build up to high levels if not properly mitigated. You and your family will most likely receive your greatest exposure where you spend most of your time... your home.
It is estimated that radon causes many thousands of deaths each year because breathing air that contains radon can cause lung cancer. In fact, the Surgeon General has warned that radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States today. Only smoking causes more lung cancer deaths. If you smoke and your home has high radon levels, your risk of contracting lung cancer is especially high.
There are simple, relatively inexpensive measures for radon reduction that you can take to fix a radon problem and even very high levels can be reduced to acceptable levels. The first step is to have a radon test done to determine if your new home has high radon levels. Radon testing is conducted with a Corentium 223 digital radon detector.
